Artist Statement

Artist Peg Sheridan lives in Staunton, Virginia. She has 40 years of experience in painting watercolors. She enjoys sharing her experience, and has been teaching art classes for 30 years. She is a faculty member of the Beverley Street Studio School in Staunton, and teaches at several other art centers in the region. With a degree in Wildlife Biology, Peg has a special interest in painting landscapes and wildlife. She enjoys painting outdoors, or “en plein air”.

Peg is a signature member of the Virginia Watercolor Society, and is active in several other arts organizations. She has won several awards for her paintings, including “Best Watercolor” in Plein Air Magazine’s August salon competition. In 2021, Peg was awarded the Louisa Arts Center Award of Artistic Merit. Peg is known for her loose, colorful watercolors.

“My paintings are a way for me to share my love of the outdoors, and my appreciation for the beauty around us. Many of them are painted outside. They also share my love of the medium of watercolor, with its transparency, ability to flow across the paper, and the wonderful surprises that happen. I usually start with a small sketch. I plan my colors, often using a limited palette of three to five colors. I then often wet my watercolor paper, and quickly put in washes of color. When that dries, I start adding details, lights, and darks. When the light, colors, and atmosphere of the day are captured, I stop. I hope that my work inspires you to get out and explore the beauty of our region.”
